Thursday, 21 August 2014 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Milgate Room, AD Hope (Building 14), Ellery Crescent, ANU
Melancholia's evocation of melodrama opens the possibility of reading it through Rousseau's ur-melodrama, Pygmalion: scène lyrique (written 1762; performed 1770)-about an artist's beloved statue who springs to life on stage-and which dramatized the composer-philosopher's theorisation of the relationship between aesthetics, social relations and cultural transformation. In particular, Pygmalion enacts arguments made in Rousseau's treatise, Essay on the Origin of Language (publ. 1781 but written in the 1750s), about the differing expressive capacities of sounds and images.

Throughout its near century-long existence as a modern state, Iraq has repeatedly undergone forces threatening to undermine its territorial integrity.

Young people such as Lei, 'the searcher', who runs a tea-house in an old part of town, are caught between a doctored history taught at school and the reluctance of their grandparents to dwell on the social tragedies of China's past, which continue to deeply and subtly define the present.
